Posted By: <b>Alan</b><p>The National is only 2 months away. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be coordinating a dinner get-together on Friday evening, August 1 right after the National for vintage sports (incl Boxing) card & memorabilia collectors at a restaurant in Rosemont. The restaurant will be very convenient (a mile or two) to the National site. Absolutely anyone and everyone is invited !!! Everyone will pay their own bill for what they eat/drink. (Note that this dinner get-together is unrelated to Leon's official Net54 dinner on Thurs night)<br /><br />There is honestly no ulterior motive for me doing this. I just figure for collectors (& dealers) to get together - meet each other, see what others collect, talk about the hobby, etc,.... I am NOT a big buyer/spender, but I still enjoy the hobby very much, especially the social aspects. I don't know, maybe this is a way I can contribute to the hobby, since I certainly can't afford to buy much. <br /><br />I will post details as the show gets closer.<br /><br />Thanks very much.<br />Alan<br /><img src="http://vbbc.forumotion.com/users/17/23/61/smiles/136179.gif"> <img src="http://vbbc.forumotion.com/users/17/23/61/smiles/136179.gif"><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Alan</b><p>Jim - I think you have me confused with Adam. He's the guy with the boxing book, not me.

Posted By: <b>David</b><p>Hi Alan,<br /><br />I had to ask if by any chance you had any interest or knew of anyone who might have any interest in a few pieces of Jewish Boxing history. I have a Joe Choynski Police Gazette Supplement from Feb 17 1900 Mounted and framed as well as a 5x7 apeda boxing pose of Max Baer signed 1935. Plus some graded boxing cards and more. Please let me know. Thanks David<br /><br /><img src="http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m165/davidoman1/104a.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m165/davidoman1/16MaxBaerSignedPhoto.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Alan</b><p>OK, Here’s the story. The dinner get-together for vintage sports (ALL sports) cards & memorabilia collectors will be on Friday evening, August 1 at about 6 pm (immediately after the National ends) at Shoeless Joe’s restaurant in Rosemont, Illinois. Here is their website:<br /><br /><a href="http://www.shoelessjoesrosemont.com/" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.shoelessjoesrosemont.com/</a><br /><br />The restaurant is very convenient (about 2 miles) from the National. I believe there are free shuttles that go there for those that don’t have cars. Absolutely anyone and everyone is invited (including spouses, children, etc,…) !!! Everyone will pay their own bill for what they eat/drink. (Note that this dinner get-together is unrelated to Leon's official Net54 dinner on Thurs night).<br /><br />RSVPs are encouraged since I need to let the restaurant know just how many people will be coming. RSVP here or e-mail me at jewishathletes@yahoo.com<br /><br />Let me know if you have any questions. <br />Thanks very much.<br /><br />Alan
